Configuring the internal GSM / LTE modem

The SNMP enabled remote monitoring & control units of the 100(DC)/400/500(DC)/600(DC)/700(DC) series can be equipped with an internal GSM or LTE modem. An angle antenna is included in the scope of delivery.

Configuration of the intelligent sensors

After you have configured and successfully tested the SMS notification, go to the menu item "System tree".  There you can see all elements of your Didactum remote monitoring and control device. In the middle you see the "Onboard temperature sensor" under the entry "Onboard". Click on this entry. We rename this sensor "Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System". Then simply enter the desired temperature thresholds. Alternatively you can use your mouse pointer. We us for example:

  • Low = 0.0 °C
  • Warning level low = 5.0 °C
  • High warning level = 55.9 °C
  • Alarm level high = 70.5 °C

Here you can see the onboard temperature sensor with the ID "201001". Below you can see the current status of the temp sensor including the measured value. Below you enter the warning and threshold values. We rename the sensor to "Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System" and then click on "Apply".

Set up notifications & alerts

All notifications, alarms and automatic actions (e.g. relay switching) are set up in the menu under "Logic scheme".

Attention: If no logic has been set up yet, please click on "+" in the upper left corner.

A new window will appear. As an example we now set up a temperature alarm for the previously configured sensor "Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System".

Simply put, in the "Logic Scheme" everything runs after (IF) => (THEN) scheme. So: Under "Element" select the sensor "Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System”. Under "Status" we select the status required for the alarm ("high alarm"). In the next field we select the entry "SMS Alert". Right next to it the monitoring unit lists the possible action "Send SMS". At the top we only enter the name of the newly created alarm rule ("SMS Alert Onboard Temp Sensor Monitoring Unit").  Then click on "OK" and save the rule permanently in the system using the floppy disk symbol.

Here you see the created SMS alert for the integrated temperature sensor of the remote monitoring & control unit.

Testing the alarm rule / logic scheme

To test the rule previously created in the "Logic schemes", you must set the "Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System" to the "High alarm" state using your mouse. To do this, select this sensor under "System tree" and enter a significantly lower temperature warning value under the High Alarm Level. You can also change the warning values with your mouse pointer. After you have clicked on "Apply", you will now see the entries marked in red in the "System tree".

Now switch to the "Overall stats" menu.  In the upper left corner under "Current log" you will see the SMS messages. Check on your mobile phone if  the SMS notificationhas arrived. After the successful test, set the sensor ""Onboard Temperature Sensor Didactum Monitoring System" back to the previously set values.

Backup the settings of your monitoring & control unit

The device settings can be saved under "System menu" => "Export" => "Download current settings".

This backup file ( settings.zor) is restored under "System Menu" => "Firmware" => "Select file". When restarting your networked Didactum Monitoring System please clear the cache of the browser first andm the restart the web browser.
